    I'm seriously considering this place over the waterfall inn one. What do you mean by tricky parking and mobility issues? Is it just a lot of stairs? also, can you tell me if the pool was actually usable? Thanks so much! Julie

    Mahalo! We need a quiet room with a king sized bed that would also fit a cot. Thinking it would be quieter to have a room that is not right next to the outside dining area. Top floor? Any suggestions? Thank you SO much for your help.

    This is not a noisy spot. Ask the owner re king bed, rooms are not fancy but spacious. Request a room at the far end - away from dining table.

    Response from Ricardo Z | Property representative |
    Aloha, The car rental is about a 3 minute walk from baggage claim at the Hilo Airport. If you are coming into the Kona Airport, there is a shuttle that takes you there and it's about 5 minutes away from baggage claim.
